SAGE has started by adopting major slums in Mumbai and one hundred villages. SAGE envisages transforming the world one village at a time and received recognition at the Clinton Global Initiative for this project. Under the aegis of the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations, through Global Dialogue Foundation, SAGE is working on creating a Unity in Diversity by celebrating all cultures and thereby working towards global peace and harmony.

The Managing Director of SAGE Foundation, Akhil Shahani, apart from looking after the under privileged, also focuses on world class Management Education (www.CentreforManagement.com) through collaborations with global universities.
